Visiting Fellows Programme

The Aleksanteri Institute Visiting Fellows Programme provides an opportunity for highly qualified scholars in Russian and Eastern European studies to visit the Aleksanteri Institute and the University of Helsinki for a period of one to three months. During the fellowship, Visiting Fellows work on their research projects and can benefit from interaction with scholars at the Aleksanteri Institute and elsewhere in Finland. Each Visiting Fellow has two academic hosts who are working on a related theme and who help them to settle in and establish contacts with the research community in Finland. Visits are supported with a monthly grant of 3300 € (in the academic year 2018–2019).  

The call for proposals for the academic year 2018–2019 is open from 8 January until 13 February 2018.
Call for proposals and how to apply

Starting from the academic year 2008–2009, the Visiting Fellows Programme has hosted over 120 Visiting Fellows working on various fields and themes within the social sciences and humanities, and representing 29 countries from Europe through North America to China.
